Once an eyesore, Harrisburg 5G pole is first in nation transformed into work of art

The Susquehanna Art Museum, in partnership with Verizon Wireless, unveiled a first-of-its-kind 5G cell pole wrapped in a colorful, abstract design by artist Stephen Michael Haas.

Verizon says this is the first 5G cell site in the nation to be turned into artwork. The collaboration with the museum is part of Verizon’s arts program to help beautify local communities. Verizon would not comment on whether other poles in the city will get a similar treatment.

The 5G pole is located directly in front of the museum, and when museum patrons and neighborhood complained it was an eyesore, Verizon and the museum worked together to make the pole better complement its surroundings.

“We are launching the first 5G pole by Verizon as a work of art at the Susquehanna Art Museum. We are so thrilled to be the first-in-the-nation art pole…,” said Alice Anne Schwab, museum executive director.
